He currently has 999 yards & barring a catastrophe, will hit the 1,000 yards for the season on his first or 2nd carry.

If he continues at his current pace & stays healthy, he will have close to 1,500 yards for the season & I have seen him improving his game each week.

With his receiving yards he is on pace to finish between 1,800 and 1,900 yards for the year!
Way to go Chester!

Good for him, I thought he was a bad choice when Childress signed him, but he gave me a nice surprise. Let's hope he hits at least 1500 by seasons end.

Is anybody concerned about his fumbles? I know a couple of them he couldn't help because he was being hit during the exchange with BJ, but the other ones are somewhat perplexing! Not to speak too soon, but congrats on your first 1,000 yard rushing season CT.

One of the fumbles the ball was actually ripped out of his hands & the one last Sunday I still don't believe was a fumble. He was down.

I watched the game that I had taped of the Cardinals game & what was quite odd was they didn't show the reply from the endzone looking directly at his head. They showed that replay more than once at the dome, but never on TV.

Why???

That is why you heard the big boo from the crowd when they didn't reverse the call. It was clear to me & 63,000 other fans that he was down.

I totally agree on that fumble on the goal line. I was at the game and that ball did not come out of his hands until after his head and elbow hit the ground! It should've been 6 for us and sealed the d@mn game! I was absolutely shocked with some of the calls by the officials that day!

I'm not really worried about his ball handling, because with the number of touches he has had this year he has done a pretty good job of covering the ball up.

Then you should recall the replay I was refering to. His elbow was on the ground & after that it showed the ball squirt out between his elbow & waist. His knees were already down also & at the very least it should have been ruled that the ground cannot cause a fumble.

Yep, I remember exactly! We were really hurt in this game by fox not having as many cameras as they would in a big game. There were no shots right down the goal line which probably would have been clear evidence of whether or not he was down and also on the Anquan Boldin TD towards the end of the game and whether or not he was actually in the end zone.

We need to give Memo at least 10 carries against the Bears.
CT is burning out.....he is wearing out and we need to lighten his load to enhance his effectiveness.
Its a huge boast that Marcus Robinson will play against the bears as he is our only ligitimate starting WR.

Any fumble/turnover concerns me, but so far, my respect for Chester's vision, endurance and plain running ability has exceeded any worries I have of him catching a career long strain of fumblitis. He just needs to "take care of the ball" (as Childress would say) a little better. Having a 1000+ yard rusher in house again is very pleasing.

If this is true...I hope someone in the Vikings organization is checking into this because someone is being dishonest be it the producer or camera men.
I thought it was very strange that they only showed 2 different camera shots on the replay they might not have had as many cameras at the game but there was definitly more than 2

C.T. has earned the right to be a feature back in the NFL.

when the replayed the hit on one of his runs for the sound of the impact, the announcer sasys it's more Chester then it is the defender<don't remember name and no tivo>. when i saw that replay and his hit again, i smiled.

people questioned his vision on the slow start, he's proven so far he can read his lanes and set his blocks

people questioned his tuffness, he gets more yards after innitial contact, he's hitting D's instead of just avoiding them, he's getting stronger and faster as the year progresses. ok he's had some strange fumbles, but his ratio's are far outstretching his drops so far. and that last one was just a horse #$%^ call, and review.

match that to the fact that last week we seemed to have
right side running lanes not just center and left. D's can't focus on a 1 sided game, i think this is gonna bring a LoT more CT yards. like going from a country road to a 4 lane highway.

I do agree though that when we have a good cushion and are just trying to eat time away, we should increase touches to our other backs. but i am really happy that we have one of the top backs in the league.
he's tuff, fast, and has proven his talent belongs in the purple & gold!!

Despite the loss yesterday, let's not lose sight of this fact;

Taylor gets to 1,000 yards before bruising his ribs (http://www.startribune.com/510/story/851601.html)

It is amazing how we want to talk so much about the QB and we fail to recognize this accomplishment.


Taylor suffered the injury in the second quarter and left the game for good late in the third. Coach Brad Childress said "nothing's broken," but Taylor gave way to Ciatrick Fason and Mewelde Moore in the fourth quarter.

"I tried to fight through it," Taylor said, "but it was too much to bear."

Taylor finished with 99 yards on 17 carries, including a 42-yard run in the second quarter. He became the Vikings' first 1,000-yard rusher since Michael Bennett rushed for 1,296 yards in 2002.

If the injury is deemed serious, Fason and Moore likely would handle the rushing responsibilities in Sunday's game at Detroit. Fason, who has been inactive for eight of the Vikings' 12 games this season, rushed for a career-high 75 yards but also was tackled in the end zone for a safety in the fourth quarter.


There were a select few that were ecstatic about Taylor being signed, me included.
I am glad that he has pulled his weight on this team.
It is a team that is pass poor and he still made it to 1000 yds with 4 more games left.

Great job CT and hope to see you back on the field soon, darn bruised ribs.

I was really happy about getting CT to, back by committee pissed me off. It works sometimes, like with the Saints (although that's a lot of "hand off to Deuce, pass to Reggie"), but it definitely was NOT working under Tice. I checked yesterday, and if I remember right Chester's still 5th in rushing yards. He's got 1098, 72 behind Tiki. If he hadn't gotten hurt, he might've pulled ahead of Tiki, because Fason got about 78 after Chester left.
